Personally, that group doesn't interest me. I don't recognize their right
to dictate vocabulary.

So consequently, when I use swearwords, they are obviously NOT meant to
shock anybody. They are meant to relieve some tension, or sometimes for
emphasis. This actually seems to work most of the time.

By the way, "politically correct" is an obscene concept in *my* eyes, and
somehow I get the feeling I'm not alone in this.

Huh?! If that's meant as "don't use those words", it's inconsistent with
itself.
